I really am trying to deal with Brutus' infection and medical problems in the most positive of ways. Sounds simple and pretty straightforward. Most of us get an infection and with treatment it usually will go away.
Our Brutus is not so lucky.
He was awake early and as you can see I have been trying to get him to use the litter pan. Not a happy face nor a happy camper. I think he is a bit scared, because he just does not understand what is going on.
He hates that pellet litter. Once again I took it all away and gave him new litter and yes, it's sandy. You see the booties? Just a kitchen towel I cut wrap around his paw and tie a string. Pretty good keeps the paw clean from the sand.
Early this morning I took him to the vet for his daily shot. The news I received was another hard blow to our already fragile state of mind. Brutus has a second "nasty" bacteria and the treatment for this one also causes kidney failure. No breaks for us. Right now he was given a spray antibiotic. Not sure if this will treat the bacteria...
We are devastated. I don't know what to do. My heart is shattered and seems like everyday instead of good news we receive bad news. Yes, I am strong. Yes, we will have to deal with it, but in the back of our minds...the truth lurks and it is a horrible one.
Hope your day is better than the one we are having.
Stay positive..I keep telling myself this as well.
Frustration, although quite painful at times, is a very positive and essential part of life...
